Pym free pdf THE SHARPEST AND MOST UNUSUAL STORY I READ LAST YEAR . . . [Mat] Johnson s satirical vision roves as freely as Kurt Vonnegut s and is colored with the same sort of passionate humanitarianism. Maud Newton, "New York Times Magazine" NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY "The Washington Post Vanity Fair Houston Chronicle" " The Seattle Times "Salon "National Post" " "The A.V. Club Recently canned professor of American literature Chris Jaynes has just made a startling discovery: the manuscript of a crude slave narrative that confirms the reality of Edgar Allan Poe s strange and only novel, "The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket." Determined to seek out Tsalal, the remote island of pure and utter blackness that Poe describes, Jaynes convenes an all-black crew of six to follow Pym s trail to the South Pole, armed with little but the firsthand account from which Poe derived his seafaring tale, a bag of bones, and a stash of Little Debbie snack cakes. Thus begins an epic journey by an unlikely band of adventurers under the permafrost of Antarctica, beneath the surface of American history, and behind one of literature s great mysteries. Outrageously entertaining, ["Pym"] brilliantly re-imagines and extends Edgar Allan Poe s enigmatic and unsettling"Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym of Nantucket." . . . Part social satire, part meditation on race in America, part metafiction and, just as important, a rollicking fantasy adventure . . . reminiscent of Philip Roth in its seemingly effortless blend of the serious, comic and fantastic. Michael Dirda, "The Washington Post" Blisteringly funny. Laura Miller, Salon Relentlessly entertaining. " The New York Times Book Review" Imagine Kurt Vonnegut having a beer with Ralph Ellison and Jules Verne. "Vanity Fair" Screamingly funny . . . Reading "Pym" is like opening a big can of whoop-ass and then marveling gleefully at all the mayhem that ensues. "Houston Chronicle""
